Europe on a 21st century-era political map of Earth

Europe was a continent on the planet Earth, forming the western part of Eurasia. The continent was bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, the Mediterranean, the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea. Things attributed to Europe were identified as European.

In the mid-14th century, the bubonic plague resulted in the death of over half of Europe's population. (TOS: "Requiem for Methuselah")

According to Leonardo da Vinci, when Petrarch climbed Mont Ventoux, he viewed the whole of Europe and believed he was witnessing the birth of a new age, the Renaissance. (VOY: "Concerning Flight")

In the mid-20th century, the assignment patch for Apollo 8 included western Europe in its design. (ENT: "First Flight")

As of 2000, Lieutenant McMillan was to participate in a joint NASA mission to the International Space Station with the Europeans, scheduled for 2003. (VOY: "11:59")

In the 2020s, Europe was affected by political problems. A guest at a party held by Chris Brynner in 2024 thought Europe was "falling apart," while expressing confidence that such troubles would never occur in the United States, an opinion that Jadzia Dax quickly shot down. (DS9: "Past Tense, Part I")

During the early 22nd century, the European Hegemony was formed, a loose alliance which represented the first stirrings towards world government. (TNG: "Up The Long Ladder")

A 21st century-era political map of Earth was stored in the USS Enterprise's library computer in 2254. The European continent was seen on this map. This map was among the materials viewed by the Talosians when they scanned the Enterprise computer. (TOS-R: "The Cage")

By the early 24th century, the European Alliance existed. (TNG: "The Price")

The European Alliance may have been the successor of the European Hegemony or they may have coexisted in Europe.
Other governments in the European region mentioned in apocrypha include the European Union (β) referenced in the Picard family album and the novel The Sundered, the United States of Europe (β) referenced in The Federation FASA RPG Sourcebook and the Mediterranean Alliance (β) referenced in the Star Trek: The Motion Picture novelization.

Background information Edit

Retroactive continuity: Several 20th century-era maps depicting Africa, or portions of it, were stored in the USS Enterprise library computer in 2254. These maps included a continent projections map, an eastern hemisphere map, a political map of the northern hemisphere, and a statistical map. These maps were among the materials viewed by the Talosians when they scanned the Enterprise computer. (TOS: "The Cage")

Decades later, a Central Intelligence Agency map was used for the remastered "The Cage". This map was published either in April 2007[1] or September 2008.[2] The difference, which was not noticeable at the resolution of the image from the episode, was the addition of Kosovo, which gained independence from Serbia between the releases.
